Sources have told The New York Daily News that failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton may set her eyes on a professor role at Columbia University.
The failed candidate used to teach at the University of Arkansas School of Law.
One big option for Hillary is the role of “University Professor” that will allow her “to lecture across a range of schools and departments without the requirement of a strict course load.”
If she takes this role, she could then take her time to decide if she’d rather settle into a professor job at the School of International and Public Affairs.
From The New York Daily News:
“It’s all fluid. It could be a number of things. No decisions have been made, but there are talks,” a different source with knowledge of Clinton’s thinking told The News.
“She’s trying to figure out what she wants to do. It could end up with the papers at one place and she has some sort of faculty role at another. She hasn’t quite come to a decision,” the source said.
Hillary obtained her law degree from Yale University in 1973. From 1974 to 1977, she worked as the director of Legal Aid Clinic at the University of Arkansas School of Law. At that same time and against from 1979 to 1980 she worked as an Assistant Professor of Law at the university.
1975 Rape Case
Hillary has always come under scrutiny for her role in a 1975 rape case when she defended Thomas Alfred Taylor, 41, who faced charges of raping a 12-year-old girl. The Washington Free Beacon found audio of her discussing the case with journalists and she admitted that she knew her client was guilty, “but used a legal technicality to plead her client, who faced 30 years to life in prison, down to a lesser charge.”
She has also faced criticism for her attacks on the 12-year-old alleged victim:
In a July 28, 1975, court affidavit, Clinton wrote that she had been informed the young girl was “emotionally unstable” and had a “tendency to seek out older men and engage in fantasizing.”
“I have also been told by an expert in child psychology that children in early adolescence tend to exaggerate or romanticize sexual experiences and that adolescents in disorganized families, such as the complainant’s, are even more prone to exaggerate behavior,” Clinton said.
Clinton said the child had “in the past made false accusations about persons, claiming they had attacked her body” and that the girl “exhibits an unusual stubbornness and temper when she does not get her way.”
But the interview reveals that an error by the prosecution would render unnecessary these attacks on the credibility of a 12-year-old rape victim.
Rose Law Firm
From 1976 to 1992 she worked as an attorney at Rose Law Firm in Little Rock, AK. She tends to not speak of this time in her life because it goes against everything she has campaigned against. She worked as a corporate litigator, with one colleague admitting that the lawyers “found ourselves squarely on the side of corporate greed against the little people.”
She continued to work there even after Bill became governor, which then led to the firm receiving enormous billable hours. From The Daily Caller:
Rose Law grew in stature during Clinton’s tenure, taking on corporate clients and commercial interests with state business. The firm represented Walmart, whose corporate headquarters are in Bentonville, Ark., and TCBY, a major frozen yogurt franchise based in Little Rock — Mrs. Clinton joined both corporate boards in the mid 1980s. With Mrs. Clinton on the firm masthead, Rose lawyers enjoyed unprecedented access to state legislators and regulators, a major selling point to out of state businesses attempting to navigate Arkansas’s regulatory regime. Firm partner William H. Kennedy III characterized Clinton as the firm’s “rainmaker,” in 1992.
Then there’s the Whitewater scandal:
Stature and scrutiny grew in equal measure for Mrs. Clinton, such that her time with the firm found itself on the business end of federal investigation during the 1992 presidential campaign, sprawling into a full-fledged congressional probe that engulfed her husband’s first term as president. Though Mr. Clinton’s financial ties to the toxic Whitewater Development Corporation were themselves the subject of protracted inquiry, Rose Law’s role in brokering transactions federal investigators determined were intended to deceive federal investigators. Mrs. Clinton billed 60 hours over a year and a half on the case, which included at least a dozen meetings with one Seth Ward, an individual who facilitated illegal straw purchases. Missing records corroborating the billings and the meetings under subpoena for two years were later recovered in Mrs. Clinton’s book room in the White House residence.
